Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro was arrested this morning and could have some involvement in a shooting, Enrique Rojas reports.... wasn't this something we just wrote about a couple of weeks ago?
So now there's two shootings.
Does this guy live in the St. Louis area?
Well, as we all know, character is one of the top five (I hope no one asks me what the other four are...) items needed to make it in the game, and this guy just doesn't have it.
I also always find it interesting that, when you see thug like character, as displayed in the past by guys like Lastings Milledge and Jordany Valdespin, the numbers usually don't come either. Valdy hit .214 for the Marlins last year. Milledge had 39 at bats last year for the Yakult Swallows of the Japanese Central League.
Of course, I always said he preformed that function.
